I guess perhaps I should mention that we've decided against going to Alaska...a fact you'll probably figure out once you realize that we're headed in the opposite direction. For the next three nights, for instance, we'll be spending at Pink House BLM Recreation Area on the Clearwater river west of Orofino, Idaho.

Why aren't we going to Alaska, you ask? Well, besides the fact that the price of diesel is creeping up (and will be even more expensive in Canada...the farther north we would have gone, the more expensive it would have become) and the exchange rate is going down, we keep pointing out all the neat places we can go now here in the good old USA now that we have the camper. We kept saying that we could visit those areas next year, but finally decided that perhaps we weren't all that excited about a third trip to Alaska and would rather check out all the little places in Idaho and other Northwest states (perhaps as far south as Nevada) that we wouldn't go in our larger fifth wheel.

When we arrived at our site here, we unloaded the camper from the truck...the first time we've done so. We'll most likely do some exploring up at Dworshak Dam...the camp host here says they have an excellent Visitor's Center there. We may also check out some of the campgrounds along Dworshak Reservoir.

Thanks for posting in your blog more frequently. I had looked forward to following your trip to Alaska, but can understand your reasoning for not going.
